|The ancient of days by William Blake, 1794.|
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
"Fire and Ice" by Robert Frost.

~ Hail to the guardians of the South
Powers of fire!
We call upon you and summon you,
Red lion of the summer heat
Sparkle of life
Through the fire that is Her spirit
Send us your flame~
